Ubuntu :: After Update Of 10.04 - Can't Start Gnome Desktop After Login

Jun 10, 2010

I use ubuntu 10.04 in VirtualBox (upgrated from 09.10), host os is Win7.

3-4 days ago update of ubuntu required restart of Ubuntu (linux kernel was updated).

After 3 days (i.e. yesterday) I restarted the system. I found that flashlib in Chrome became to work unstable, some artefact appeared, and only scrolling down-up in browser allowed to update view of screen. I run update manager. It showed ~88Mb of updates for last 3 days.

After download of updates, apply changes was failed! I faced this first time (!). I remember message like "can not synchronize file /usr/share/..." or something like that.

I restarted ubuntu again. Now I could not login. System hangs after login. No Gnome menu appears etc.

I tried to fix issue using dpkg. I found that some lib (ure) related to OpenOffice was not assigned (version XXX required, but bersion XXXY found). dpkg offered to solve this by some combination. I did so. Then I run dpkg update, and no errors appeared.

Also I updated VirtualBox to version 3.2.4, updated VirualBox Additions via console terminal in ubuntu.

But still I can't fix problem with gdm/gnome.

dpkg-reconfigure gnome-*** did not help for me.

I tried to check logs, but I have not found something "interesting".

At the moment terminal is the only way to login.

Ubuntu :: Gnome Desktop Won't Start

Jan 29, 2011

I've recently updated to Ubuntu 10.10. At first I had no problems, but after the third time I logged in, my desktop background appeared (and nothing else) but quickly flashed to a black screen with some error messages (too fast for me to see) and I got sent to the login screen. After trying some more times I got the same problem with some small differences(sometimes my desktop icons showed up, other times it took a couple of minutes before I got kicked out).

I tried running startx from the terminal but got one of these two error messages: Server already running or could not find any listening ports. If I run "sudo startx -- :1" to switch the port I login fine, but as the root user. Gnome works perfectly here and when I login in gnome-failsafe. This leads to believe it has something to do with my user configuration. I've restarted xorg server, installed gnome-main-menu and made sure if got the current gnome package.

Fedora :: Gnome 3 Doesn't Start No Login

Jul 30, 2011

When I boot my Fedora 15 installation it shows me the blue screen with progress indicator, however I do not reach the login screen.Instead I see the textual shell where the last item is:Started Display Manager.It looks like my monitors are not detected anymore. I have been working with them though (this appeared after a restart). I am not sure how I determined it but I read in some log that no display was detected. Nothing changed to the hardware set up however.I see some suggestions to run system-config-display as root.However this command can not be found nor can it be found when I run yum install system-config-display.

Ubuntu :: Gnome Does Not Start Correctly After Update?

Dec 4, 2010

I recently got the last round of updates, including linux kernel 2.6.32.26. after several programs froze up (i hadn't restarted since the update) i restarted only to find that Gnome starts up into a different look than I had it setup to (normally with a custom theme and without a login prompt). it now starts with a more basic theme and a login prompt which won't accept my password. something similar had happened before and i fixed it by booting into recovery mode and running dpkg, and having to reboot more than once but it returned to normal. I tried running it again and it hasn't worked, so I must ask for advice. I am working from Fedora 10 on the same computer.

I have it configured in the application settings to do that, and I've checked the Startup Applications and indeed it is listed there.However when I start up the icon doesn't appear in the tray and my wallpaper won't change every 10 minutes like it's supposed to until I actually go to System > Preferences and run Desktop Drapes manually.

Fedora :: Start A Service On User Login To Gnome

Oct 15, 2009

Does anyone know a secure method for starting a service after a user logs in to the desktop environment? There are a couple of issues that I'm trying to work around / troubleshoot and this would assist with doing that.

I'm running Fedora 11, not sure if that matters for this question.

Debian Configuration :: Gnome Login Screen Fails To Start

Oct 6, 2015

Today I upgraded my system to the Nvidia driver 340.93 and 4.2.0-1 kernel on Debian Stretch.

While I wait for the gnome login screen to pop up I get the "Oh no something has gone wrong" message.

When I log in from another terminal and execute startx , gnome initiates and starts although settings like my resolution and other xserver settings are not loaded.

From the journalctl I believe the error is located in the following section:

Code: Select allOct 06 14:23:17 DEBIAN-PC org.a11y.atspi.Registry[1692]: SpiRegistry daemon is running with well-known name - org.a11y.atspi.Registry
Oct 06 14:23:17 DEBIAN-PC gnome-session[1680]: X Error of failed request:  BadValue (integer parameter out of range for operation)
Oct 06 14:23:17 DEBIAN-PC gnome-session[1680]: Major opcode of failed request:  154 (GLX)

[Code] ....

I reinstalled the xorg-xserver and the nvidia drivers and I get the same behavior.

Looking for some info in order to reconfigure the gnome-session to work?

Ubuntu Installation :: Flashing Gnome Desktop And Login Screen ?

Jan 7, 2010

I'm having this problem with Ubuntu 9.10, it has happened the three times I have tried to install it.

I have made a video showing the problem: [url]

After upgrading and rebooting, the flashing login screen appears and it is not possible to use the GDM.

I have tried to install KDM and it works, but when trying to load gnome I get the blinking bars again.

I have also tried this (and got the same problem); installing the Nvidia driver (manufacturer), installing the Nvidia driver (repositories) and installing no screen driver.

I think the problem is with GNOME, and not with the graphics card.

Now I have installed windows xp :-/, for the first time in a whole year, cause it is not possible for me to use Ubuntu 9.10 at all.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Gnome Desktop Login Disables Multidisplay For ATI?

Mar 7, 2011

I am running maverick 10.10 with ATI drivers and two monitors. When I boot up both monitors are enabled and in multidisplay mode, showing the login widget and background, but when I log in the second monitor gets disabled and I have to use the ATI control panel to reconfigure to multidisplay. Not a major issue but rather annoying. This also happened with 10.04 LTS BTW. I was hoping for better behaviour in 10.10.

Is there a way to persist the ati control panel configuration across reboot +relogin ? Why would gnome desktop startup disable multidisplay ( and where might that be configured ) ?

I can't see anything obvious in /etc/gdm for this. xorg.conf lists both monitors enabled.

Ubuntu :: Gnome-panel Doesn't Start On Login / But Gconf Settings Look Correct

Sep 5, 2010

I installed avant-window-navigator and followed these instructions to remove gnome-panel from startup: URL...However I have since uninstalled AWN and now cannot get gnome-panel to load at startup.I think I have put my settings back where they should be -- looking at them in gconf-editor:

1. desktop > gnome > session, the required_components_list is [windowmanager,filemanager,panel]

2. desktop > gnome > session > required_components_list, the panel value is "gnome-panel"

Yet gnome-panel does not load at startup. Any ideas why?Clarification: I can get gnome-panel to load by listing it under Startup Applications, but I am curious why it won't load via the gconf settings.

Fedora :: Moved Desktop (physically) And Now Gnome 3 Won't Start

May 24, 2011

Our office moved yesterday. I shut down the computer cleanly and physically moved it to the new location. On startup, the wallpaper shows on both monitors, and the login screen. But, when I log in, I get failed to load session "gnome"

I am using Fedora Core 15. The only hardware that changed is I swapped out my cordless usb mouse for a corded one because I left the dongle at home. How I can I troubleshoot the problem and get my computer up and running again?

General :: Start Up Gnome Desktop From Remote Terminal?

Jul 27, 2009

I looked around for threads addressing this issue and some have come close to answering it, but I have yet to see a definitive yes or no. Anyway - Here's my issue:

Background:
I can SSH into my home computer (Ubuntu 9.04 running Gnome) from work (Win XP Pro) using RealVNC via Putty tunnels. This has been working flawlessly for me for awhile now. I was messing around in the terminal window and accidentally rebooted the linux box (home computer) while I was at work. No big deal I thought. So I re-start the Putty connection, and it is back up in no time. Then I try to start the VNC connection, and no go, connection refused. I remember seeing that in order for the VNC connection to work, I had to be logged into the Gnome desktop already on the Ubuntu box.

Question:
Is it possible to log in and start up a Gnome desktop session from the terminal command line in Putty so I can get the VNC connection back?

Ubuntu Installation :: Update Broke GUI Login - Gnome Power Management

Sep 1, 2011

Here's the error I get:
"The configuration has not installed correctly for Gnome power management".
Updated my 11.04 install via the update manager last night. When I turned my computer on today it wouldn't boot into the normal gui desktop. Where my normal login screen usually appears a different login screen appears with my username. I login. Screen flickers black for a few seconds and a page with a ton of text shows up for a fraction of a second ( too short of a time to read a single word). more flickering. Then I am returned to the slightly different login screen once again with the error. I tried booting into failsafeX gui mode. Same issue.

General :: Auto Start Bash Script After Login To Desktop?

Mar 26, 2010

I am using Fedora and trying to auto run a script soon after the unit boots to desktop. I found many suggestions and finally decided to use the Sessions->Startup Programs option (under System->Preferences->Personal->Sessions menu). I added my script in the Startup Programs with the command 'sh myscript.sh'. Now I have two questions here:1. When I use the command 'gnome-terminal -e myscript.sh', I get 'There was an error creating the child process for this terminal' message after logging into the desktop. Can any one tell if I am missing something here?2. Even if I use sh instead of gnome-terminal, I still want to see the script executing. In other words, my script has certain echo statements indicating the flow of the script. But I don't see any shell opening up with these echo statements showing up, after the unit boots to desktop. But the script was still executed with no problem
